A lot of AI analysis consists in taking individual entities and then making graphs out of them through training or making categories using some sort of algorithm like Nearest Neighbours (kNN). What I am interested in, though, is understanding the graph that is already created by the interactions of people online (and in society generally). A good example of this is shown in this paper. The author examines the Wikipedia graph through time and across various events. We see society working the way a mind works. "We see that the core events trigger relevant memories."
